In 2013, Typhoon Haiyan took over 10,000 lives in the Philippines, leaving the island country devastated. The Japanese earthquake and tsunami in 2011 killed about 19,000 people and released nuclear radiation into the soil. These recent weather disasters can be explained by global warming. In fact, recently severe climate events are the result of weather change that is being caused by human activities. Global warming is characterized by an increase in temperatures, which causes...

I am writing this post after a whole day of observing negotiations at the ministerial meeting of Small Islands States in preparation for climate change summit in Lima. I was placed at a table towards the back on the room with a clear label: OBSERVER. A few government officials of the Seychelles came to visit to tease that now they were being observed they could feel more pressure. I am sure they were only teasing but I answered to confirm of course I am observing all to hold you ac...

It has already started. The effects of climate change have meant that people are being forced to migrate. A case of a family from Tuvalu applied for asylum in New Zealand and although it was granted it was on humanitarian ground on the basis that there had close ties in NZ. In fact the bulk of the case was on the premise that they were being affected by climate change. This decision has drawn attention to the Refugee convention in place. The Refugee Convention currently in place do...

You may have read the title and wondered what on earth I'm on about. But I'm worried; worried that we are slowly destroying our world. Global warming - the increased used of carbon by man which has exacerbated the greenhouse effect, is taking it's toll. Ice sheets are melting. Rivers are flooding. And temperatures are rising. Some might argue that all of the above are as a result of the earth's natural cycle of heating and cooling, known more commonly as climate change. But over 80% of scienti...

In Maroantsetra, the main roads of the inhabitants are the waterway. The villages are connected by waterways. Therefore, water plays a very important role in the economy. Yet people practice shifting cultivation or Tavy and damage much of the primary forest. When the forest begins to disappear, sand and sludge discharge into waterways. Tree roots have set them before. The rain also becomes irregular. One can even say that the cause of the climate change comes from the slash and b...

Literally Antseranampontsy means banana’s port. Bananas come from the countryside and arrive in Maroantsetra at Antseranampotsy. Before, marketers of bananas were traders of yams but because the latter begin to be scarce so, the people sell banana. There are 5-10 canoes per day arriving at Maroantsetra to bring bananas. Now banana production decline because there is also banana diseases. Disease may come from climate change. Farmers do not usually maintain the plantations of ba...

You know how in those alien invasion movies like "transformers" how aliens can just create a new home on another planet when their own planet is dying out? Well I wish I could say the same for us. We can't just up and go to Mars and set camp there and act like Earth never existed. As much as I hate to admit, we only have this one Earth, this one home. And if it crumbles, so will we. What we are doing right now is creating a world that will not save us. We are robbing tomor...

Tomorrow, an important event is taking place in New York City – one with repercussions far beyond the tiny island of Manhattan. Tomorrow, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon will host the 2014 Climate Summit, with an important goal – to get everyone behind the plan to address climate change and the effects it will have on us all. But these effects are likely to impact some groups of people more than others – and children and young people are key among them. Not...

Things are heating up in New York as people mobilise for the world's largest march to bring about action to combat climate change and the Seychelles is no exception. The Seychelles National Youth Assembly decided to host an event to commemorate climate change global day of action. Today was about: Mobilisation. Education. Action. As young people gathered early Saturday morning as Mahe Island experienced torrential downpours we gathered in a cosy room in a primary school. The...
